Fantastic evening, singing and dancing and the boys playing the instruments were fantastic. Danny was awesome and a great entertainer. Very informative talk about Rarotonga's culture prior to this and great crowd involvement. Was a really good evening.More

We did this after the bigger Te Vara Nui Village over water show. We much preferred this event, which was much smaller and more focussed on telling the history of the Islands. The dinner was quite traditional, though it’s clear they are still working on...More

Entertainment was very good, food was great - plenty for everyone, and the experience as whole was one to remember. Great for groups - there were a few family groups including children. Tutu and the team looked after us very well.
